Converted from the former listed sandstone barn, this charming property has been renovated to a high standard using oak fittings and retaining a feature stone wall and large barn doors which provide a light, bright living space. The décor is attractive and stylish and the wood burner creates that cosy ambiance making a romantic holiday home. Situated in the heart of Greystoke, a popular and pretty small village in the Eden Valley, The Barn stands in a courtyard within the grounds and adjoining the owners’ listed house. There are delightful village walks and cyclists will enjoy winding through the attractive villages and wild flower-laden country lanes. Ullswater, known as the most romantic lake, and the Keswick area with its spectacular high fells, are both within a 20-minute drive. This location is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and those wishing to unwind in a beautiful, relaxing and peaceful setting. The village has an outdoor swimming pool in summer. Shop, pub and restaurant 60 yards.

The Barn can be booked together with Coach House (UK1066) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

Great little cottage which is set in an idyllic village. The location is great, close to most places to visit and only 5 miles from Penrith. The enclosed garden was great for our dog and some lovely walks around the village. The local pub was very friendly. Hopefully get back next year.

The Barn is very comfortable and well-equipped. However the description and photos don’t make clear that it backs onto a small road - in fact it has a back door, next to the kitchen, which opens onto it. This is very convenient for walking across to the friendly local pub in under a minute or two. But it does mean that there is some traffic noise and quite a din when groups of racehorses clatter past on the road just feet away from the Barn, starting before 8 am! If you’re not sensitive to noise or you’re up early, this could be a great choice. Sadly it didn’t work for us.
